Boring, never! I find the many choices of posts wonderful! There are threads that are strictly informational, there are threads that are funny, others that are philosophical and thoughtful, and yes, some are just plain inane. But I find that there are more than enough threads that I get enormous pleasure from. Sorry some of you are bored; I'm not.
It also amazes me that there are complaints about the regulars-- those who share so much of their travelling experience should be thanked. I share when I have something pertinent to say; and if others have more experience, I welcome what they have to say.
But then there are threads where people like to complain about this site-- now those are boring!

Huh? This is the most boring thread I've ever read on this board. If it seemes like "" a personal chat room" I certainly am not among those invited and would care less anyway. When there are threads in which people trade personal information or get into personal "conversations," which WILL happen in this sort of venue, I just hop over them. I don't see a problem. THIS is a boring thread!

Oh,I just love it when the self proclaimed "Fodorites" get all self righteous.Do any of you actually travel?All the comments and responses are the same.It seems you read the same Rick Steves book and suggest the same places to stay,eat and see.Why is it you get offended when somebody asks about a 4 or 5 star hotel,a fancy restaurant or any luxury.Not everyone thinks its a crime to spend extra on the one special vacation.I use this site with the hope of getting honest travel feedback .Give others a chance.

Couldn't agree more with the previous poster about how so many of the Fodorite "experts" give the same, repetitive advice. I recall a post not long ago in which a young man was considering renting an apartment in Monmartre for his stay in Paris and asked for opinions on his plan. Predictably, most of the "experts" suggested that he abandon that idea in favor of the typical tourist hangouts in the 5th and 6th. They never seemed to consider that he might have gotten a better taste of Parisian life by following his original plan. It seems that so few of these posters ever get off the beaten path that they have nothing to offer but the usual tourist experience. Sad.

I agree that less travel is being discussed.Though people have the "right" to post any type of questions on this site they may be better at a generic chat room discussing the weather.

I must be dense. Nowhere in this thread can I find anything remotely about travel. And isn't the initial post about the number of threads which aren't about travel--that it has just turned into a "personal chat room". IMHO this thread is just adding to the number of non-travel threads. (But I've been wrong before. )

Since someone has already brought this up to no 1, Why is everyone responding to this? You are all proving his/her point.

Maybe Paul is correct.This site has been taken over by self indulgent regulars who rather act like spoiled children instead of talking TRAVEL.For those who care about travel dont answer those stupid threads that have nothing to do with travel.Back to TRAVEL!

Are you one of the self indulgent regulars who rather act like spoiled children instead of talking TRAVEL? Why else would you reply to those stupid threads that have nothing to do with travel. YOUR OWN WORDS!!
